Two groups of first year students from John Moores University Building Surveying and Architecture department have visited the Anfield regeneration scheme as part of their studies.
Almost 50 students took part in the tour in two separate groups and were shown around the area where a major programme of regeneration is now underway.
Senior members of the Frank Rogers team joined lecturers during the one hour tour, answering questions and providing information on the structural issues relating to the rows of terraced homes surrounding LFC’s famous ground.
Studies focused on the interior and exterior of the homes including internal layout, design, roof, floor, partitions and much more.
Mike Travis, Contracts Manager at Frank Rogers said:
“These properties were built during X and have fallen into various states of disrepair through the years. The Anfield regeneration project is interesting as conditions vary from house to house so there is a real mix of repair and improvement with demolition and new build. There is considerable variety here, making this a great case study for the students and we were pleased to meet them and show them all around.”
The LMJU students will be invited back to the site once works are complete.
Mike Farragher, Senior Lecturer at LJMU:
“Thanks to all the staff at Frank Rogers who were so welcoming to the students. The regeneration project in Anfield is a great example of conservation to the students who are studying on the first year of the BSc (Hons) Building Surveying and BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology. Elements like working in confined sites, party wall agreements, demolition and building logistics and constructional techniques were really well explained by the staff at Frank Rogers.
“It’s a vital part of education to bring students to a site to see the constructional components and constraints in real time rather than looking at issues on a computer screen or in a lecture theatre. Thanks also the Halsall Lloyd Partnership for their kind contact.”
